Plays well with others.

acertaindoebear found something fun. What a way to waste a few hours! Of course, I'm doing more important things, but not when I got the link.

Speaking of acertaindoebear, xie kind of intimidates me. It isn't something xie is doing, rather something I seem to be doing. I keep saying things that could have been phrased better or not said at all every time acertaindoebear is reading. It makes me feel real awkward. A curse, perhaps?

acertaindoebear: Notes from the Ether?

I hope you feel 'better' now, m'dear *snug*

It's always interesting for me to read others' perceptions.

Did you feel that you had to be better somehow? That I am kind of like a teacher or judge who watches over?

(Here is another example of how long I can wait in online 'conversations'. You don't have to answer -:)

holophote: The omniscient perspective

Incidentally, thank you for the Outsider recommendation. Reading that and Ted Farb's "Word Play" concurrently was a real kick in the pants. :>

acertaindoebear: Re: The omniscient perspective

I'm glad you've enjoyed it. I think it could stand to be written more clearly, but I think that is Colin Wilson's style. What did you think?

And now I know about a Ted Farb. But wasn't it a Peter Farb who wrote Word Play?

I've thought of an answer to your pronoia/metanoia question, but I can't seem to read that post of yours anymore. Would you like more stuff to ponder?

axonfuel: Re: The omniscient perspective

Ah, you're right! Peter Farb.

My only criticism of The Outsider is that if an alien race read the book, they would think that women existed to be left by their husbands.

More stuff to ponder - most definitely. Here, let me flip a few switches - *bzzzT*

masstreble: Re: Notes from the Ether?

As to your questions as to how I felt I reacted to you: actually, yes. How are you doing that? I'm normally very good at reading people, but you're a confounding mystery to me. That's why I made mention of it.

Sorry for the delay, here, as my recent posts indicate, I can't be especially speedy or conversive online; it's sadly not a luxury I have in my current sitation -- shared dial-up connection with three other frequent 'net users and a rather busy house line.

acertaindoebear: Notes on Potential Possibilities

Have you read Promethea yet, the graphic novel by Alan Moore?

I remember shared-dial-up. I remember pre-Netscape. Now I am addicted to the sounds and lights of the Net. It's a failing of mine -:)
